John Jay Flicker - One Poem

Elution Repose

Salted rain awry upon the rust
Chipping blocks apart from red aloof
A changing hue in iron ore to orange rain
Burgundy tone reflecting back some
The surface acquits its grasping temper
A substrate level return
To acquiesce into the kindling
An amber mentor crackling and groaning
Listless insight into night augers
A tentative riposte to the clang of oak

An apple in the eye digression
Tempering the steel and the opaque tone
More than just a moiety of pencil shavings
Backdrops and tinted melody
Folding foot first into the bedrock
The firm inclusions of roots
Whose tips walk on egg shells
And the rotten fortitude of organisms
Broken sky backs of dyads and moss rock
A tribute to the Eastern tree face
Where the sun rises every morning

Currently a student at the University of California Merced, John Jay Flicker's first publication, "The Able and Endeared," became available in 2012 through Haggard and Halloo.
